The Moraine Valley Community College Foundation and the Fine and Performing Arts Center (FPAC) are collaborating to make upgrades that will improve training for students and attract the finest in entertainment.

Through the FPAC 2019 Challenge, the college hopes to provide a professional-level experience and training for students by updating the technology in the FPAC that includes energy-efficient lighting, moving spotlights, lighting control boards, digital wireless microphones, and a digital sound system.

“This challenge is so important to help us keep up with rapidly changing technology,” Hensel said.

The goal is to raise $50,000 by 2019 to be used for new equipment and technology for the theater, according to Tommy Hensel, managing director of the FPAC, who said that thanks to the generous support from a donor, every donation given now through June 2019 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000.
